Do You Have a Falcon With a Special Talent?
Falcon Talent Page
The Falcon Talent Page is a demonstration of Hillcrest students' many gifts and serves as a form of recognition for less flashy talents, but still equally interesting ones. For example, flashier talents such as singing, dancing or comedy acts are already recognized at the Falcon Fest assembly, while skills such as baking, drawing, school projects and even dirt biking can be acknowledged in the school newsletter. Individual sports highlights can also be acknowledged.
If interested, please contact Tracey.Brody@dvusd.org
